Tomas Sorensen is a man of great passion, optimism and ideals. A Norwegian immigrant to Western Canada in the 1920’s, he dreams of establishing a family wheat dynasty. But the perfect storm of prairie drought and the economic crash of 1929 delivers his family to the precipice of ruin. When his beautiful wife, Solveig dies, he vows to return her body to her homeland, embarking on a Quixotic mission to build a ship and sail out of the prairie dust bowl. He is pulled back from the brink of madness by the unconditional love of his young children.
